Since 1916, Alcoa aluminum has exposed the West Badin community to cancerous chemicals in the ground, water, and even inside their homes. NC regulators have let Alcoa get away without cleaning up the waste for decades. Join us for an environmental justice tour, followed by a rally & speakout! Lunch & snacks provided!
Join us on September 30th 2023 at Mt Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Badin NC, to demand that Alcoa takes accountability for the harm they've done!
